The Victim>Scarlet>Fire is outstanding.
This one didn't do much for me
Subject: Punctuation Police
Damn dude....Hook up with a review....Personally I waded through the four reviews on this show, and never got in over my neck....never once got my head wet....much less have it start spinning. Oh it all starts out innocent enough; The first review is all music.( But then that review is by Lord Happy who is, in my experience, not only happy but dead on with the music...Thank you.) The second a critique of the recording, (SBD verses AUD,) with a short side trip into funkladelica and whatever the Jetro parking lot was/is. That's OK, He liked the show. And then along comes Cosmiccricky and he breaks it wide open... with yes.... I would call it rambling, appears to be as much about the Spectrum, as anything else...and I did follow it all the way through, But hey I work with those suffering from dementia, so.....( Actually right there at the end I couldn’t figure out who was the candyman; The Candyman himself, Jerry, The Spectrum, Cosmiccricky himself or all the above....) BUT I did gather that he liked the show, which is the point of a review regardless of whether it makes sense, you should be able to figure out if the reviewer liked it, or not. After all with a handle like Cosmiccricky just what do you expect anywho....Mr. Cricky may not even be certain yet as to just exactly what planet he has landed on this time around.... And he did at least get the spelling together... for the most part! Apparently NOT GOOD ENOUGH for Garnet Gladiolas who puts the smack-down on Cricky like we were discussing football or national security on talk radio...Like go ahead and throw you hat in the ring if you feel that strongly about it...BUT you’ll never get my vote for punctuation police Garnet,( It is after all perfectly acceptable to write in a free-form style with NO PUNCTUATION at all...besides I've spread enough periods through this rant to give a few to the starving Cricky's of the world.) I would of course be amiss if I failed to point out that in the course of schooling Mr. Cricky, Mr. Gladiolas misspells hurts!!!! In the end I have no idea of what Mr. Gladiolas thinks about the show. He gives four stars....but I don't know if that's for the show....or if he's giving the stars to himself for his crime-investigating skills.Or... it's all a joke on Mr. Gladiolas part...in which case he's got me good!!! Oh yea....What did I think of the show? Slightly better than average show. Very good sound quality. High points, for me, end of first set SIMWMBA into Foolish Heart into TPL. 2nd set Victim or Crime, and always just about any version of Wharf Rat ever. Well worth a listen...and if you were there it probably means a lot to you. Thanks for reading my review.

Dude - hook us up with a few periods - even an occasional comma, semicolon or exclamation point would be welcome. My brain hurst from trying to read your rambling.
Subject: the hot dirty overcrowded sticky magical spectrum
aside from msg the spectrum was played more than any other venue .it was the bands favorite and jerry had his home away from home right over the bridge in nj. the scene was always on fire and despite the overcrowding everyone always managed a good time phil treated the spectrum to the first unbroken chain in april 95 insisting to someother bandmembers that he wanted to break it out in philly although they were quite there yet on sound checks fall 1990 was scary to say the least with the recent passing of brent no one new what to expect this show calmed all fears as evry one stepped up their game and blew the roof over t he house couldn't help having a sense of deja vu with the same opener i witnessed the year before during oct 18 19 20 1989 shakedown rooster peggy o if you were in the upper seats you were familar with the spectrum slime that developed from 40 years of beer sweat and whoknows what after the building became warm those shows threw the 80's and 90's were the best memories of my life 10/20/89 took me round the world without leaving my seat each song physicaly brought mme to a brand new theme with candyman i remeber the building turning into a giant big top circus tent vividly red and white with one spotlight beaming on jerry by the time it was halfway through i new for shore the candyman around
Subject: SBD appears, finally?
Yo CM... where has this SBD been hiding? The uber-excellent Aud was/is top-notch and truly captured/s that unique Spectrum/Phila "spirit." Obviously, one of my favorite attended shows and it's great to finally shorten the distance of the music. Superb recording of well-above average performance.
BTW-if anyone remembers, there was a downright funkadelic post-show rave in the Jetro parking lot.

Artfully played and the second set is, as noted, seamless. Thanks for sharing this piece of magic!
